Everybody’s lives are affected by Covid in different ways and if you are struggling with things, counselling can help you find a way through.

It's about helping you feel better and function better. You come as you are with doubts, questions and fears, and your counsellor will make you feel comfortable then help you to identify what you hope to gain from counselling. Gently, at your own pace your counsellor will help you move towards your goals, supporting you as you face the pain and difficulties in your life. Because everyone is unique your sessions will be tailored to what you need using a variety of approaches. There will be some tears and some laughter along the way but you will be glad you made the journey. There is hope for you!
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
In Scotland today counselling is the term generally used to describe an activity where a client is able to talk to someone in a confidential safe space with the aim of feeling better and managing things better, sometimes it includes seeking advice and other sources of help. Psychotherapy is used to mean a type of therapy which deals with the mind, the psyche. The terms can be used interchangeably. We choose to use them together to give a sense of the breadth of what we offer, from simple non-judgemental confidential listening to creative and well researched techniques, all aimed at helping you feel and function better.
The service is available to people of any faith or none and we offer the opportunity to explore issues from a Christian perspective for those who request it. If you have a Christian faith, it is helpful to find a counsellor who can understand your all your life's issues including your beliefs, doubts and experiences.
Our counsellors create a safe space for people to bring the complex messy reality of who they are, body soul and spirit, to be understood, helped and supported on the journey towards well-being.
